Signia announced it will showcase its Xperience hearing aids and tinnitus solutions that enable veterans to enhance their human performance through “improved hearing in every situation,” at JDVAC 2021.
JDVAC, the Joint Defense Veterans Audiology Conference, is produced annually by the Association of VA Audiologists (AVAA) and the Military Audiology Association (MAA) and is taking place virtually this year from March 1-3. Signia will be exhibiting at a virtual booth and will spotlight its latest Signia Xperience hearing aids offered to veterans through the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and to active military through the Department of Defense (DoD), including its Pure Charge&Go X, Pure 312 X, Styletto X, and CROS X hearing aids.
“Each year, JDVAC provides us with a terrific opportunity to connect with the VA audiologist community and highlight the latest Signia innovations that are enabling our veterans to live their best lives through optimized hearing in any situation,” said John Murray, Signia’s Vice President of Government Services. “Whether it’s sound amplification, improved speech intelligibility, or tinnitus therapy, Signia delivers some of the most iconic innovations in the hearing aid market, helping VA and DoD audiologists to give veterans and active military an edge through enhanced hearing performance.”
Throughout the conference, Signia staff will engage with attendees and be available to answer any questions about Signia solutions. Signia will also showcase a 15-minute video CEU outlining current Signia products and benefits, in addition to a variety of downloadable, educational content to provide attendees with useful product information alongside research and white papers on how these solutions can help veterans with hearing loss.
In addition to the exhibition, Dr Gus Mueller, an industry leader and Signia advisor, and Dr Carol Meyers, manager, clinical education at Signia, will lead an information session on the latest solutions from Signia, helping attendees discover how connectivity, core signal processing, and personalization provide practical and significant benefits to veteran patients in their everyday activities. The presentation, titled “Distinctive Innovations from Signia,” will take place on Wednesday, March 3 at 9:30 AM CST.
Signia Xperience hearing aids showcased at JDVAC are backed by “multiple audiology and technology world firsts, such as acoustic-motion sensors, Own Voice Processing (OVP), the Signia app, and more.” These innovations are designed “to combat stigma, drive adoption, and ultimately enable veterans to optimize their human performance through enhanced hearing.” Conference attendees can expect to see the following innovations from Signia at JDVAC 2021:
- Signia’s tinnitus solutions, including Signia’s proprietary Notch Therapy. Signia Notch Therapy helps provide amplification with a notch filter set to correspond to the individual’s tinnitus frequency. With veterans having higher rates of tinnitus than the general public, solutions like Notch Therapy can help ease symptoms.
- Signa’s “first-of-its-kind acoustic-motion sensor technology,” which is said to “recognize one’s movements and adjust sounds accordingly to ensure hearing in any situation” is as precise and personalized as possible, according to the company.
- Signia’s “world’s-first Own Voice Processing, a cutting-edge technology that processes the wearer’s voice separately from other sounds, leading to higher user satisfaction with the sound of their own voice.”
- The Signia app, which helps provide access to hearing aid controls, streaming capabilities, tinnitus therapy; the Signia Assistant for a more personalized listening experience and 24/7 digital support; Signia TeleCare, for remote care support; Signia Face Mask Mode for better speech understanding through masks, and much more.
